Finally! A Chic Heel for Women Who Hate Wearing Heels

Go on, call us "blockheads". We won't take offense. We're head over (chunky) heels in love with the new crop of of mini block pumps and we don't care who knows it.

    Equal parts practical and chic, the silhouette lengthens the look of your legs without submitting your feet to the cruel and unusual punishment that often comes with a higher heel. And we love the subtle, mod vibe. Read on to shop our favorite styles.

    French Sole

    To offset the girly-ness of the bow, try these with tight leather trousers that hit at the ankle.

     

     Drum Pump ($215) in Cherry

    Miu Miu

    We like the idea of these bejeweled pumps with a full skirt a la Tibi’s silk tulle version ($425).

     

    Embellished-Heel Suede Mary Jane Pumps ($850)

  • 4 of 13

    Nicholas Kirkwood

    Try these chic metallic pumps with a crisp shift dress and a bare—but reasonably tan—leg.  

     

    Metallic Leather Pumps ($595)

    Oscar de la Renta

    We can totally see Olivia Palermo work her uptown/downtown magic on these, pairing them with floral print pants and a punchy top.

     

    Tweed and Patent Leather Pumps ($284)

    Prada

    Paging Swinging Sixties London: your signature footwear is back in stock.

     

    Suede Buckled Block-Heel Pumps ($690) in Navy

    Salvatore Ferragamo

    Meet the shoe that started it all. The Vara pump is a true original.

    Seychelles

    Ruby red slippers to channel your inner Dorothy/Liberace. 

     

    Make a Scene ($70)

    Topshop

    We’d love to see these patent leather Mary Janes with a black linen jumpsuit.

     

    Matter Croc Dolly Shoes ($45)

    Tory Burch

    The ornate heels on these Tory Burch shoes mean you can go light on the accessories.

     

    Bea Pumps ($295) in Bright Navy

  • 11 of 13

    Zara

    These babies cost just $5 more than a ticket to see Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa. Even with the five extra bucks, we think the choice is clear.  

     

    Block Heel Ballerina Shoes ($20)

  • 12 of 13

    Armani Collezioni

    These understated shoes practically scream “sensible work wear”. Jazz them up with a graphic pencil skirt and some bold (but still office-appropriate) accessories.

     

    Sandals ($185) in Gray

  • 13 of 13

    Fendi Metallic Leather Flats ($750)

    Throw these guys on with dark wash skinnies and a chunky knit — cozy meets disco ball glam.
